Although fringe is often spotted on the red carpets or at music festivals, it seems to be making a big statement on the season’s runways as well. While we have been seeing glimpses of fringe here and there over the past couple years, tassels and fringe accents are back and bigger than ever for Spring/Summer 2018. Whether you want to sashay your way out the door in an adorned skirt or embrace subtlety, fringe can be rocked in countless ways. We’ve curated a few runway approved ways to wear this rising trend right now.
Model Hailey Baldwin rocked this Bottega Veneta number on the catwalks, and we can certainly see why. With its shift dress style, embellished bodice and strands of dangling blush fringe, the dress makes a loud and proud statement. For a finishing touch, Baldwin pairs this bohemian chic frock with pointed toe flats and a ladylike handbag.
While Bottega Veneta might showcase the fringed dress in all its glory, you can also wear this trend on Casual Friday. Loewe features the look perfectly, in the form of a white logo tee detailed with a slashed, fringe hem. Meanwhile, cuffed denim, a sun hat, sneakers and a nautical style shoulder bag help to seal this summer style statement in place.
At Elie Saab, all white everything was the order of the day, in the form of a flirty ivory fringed skirt. Paired with a cropped white military jacket and a gold and white top, this casual yet chic ensemble can work for day or night. The airy fabric and light colour of the skirt helps to balance out the fringe, and create an overall wearable outfit.
